Yeah - how about 5 years later? This right off the line Chevy has performed this feat, while brand new. But after some years, scale, and mechanical deterioration of that pump and its ancillary gizmos (not shown) would make that feat impossible. Even our Plymouth Savoy, twenty years later had pumps, radiator caps, and or thermostats replaced many times. I got so sick of us out in the middle of nowhere, and "Boom" on comes the "hot" idiot light. This film made in its day makes me anxious just to look at.

A classic, well done, relatively early JH film, nonetheless. Beautiful scenes of the engine, hence a good film for girls.

Informative little Chevrolet short about how water lubricates your engine and makes it run more smoothly. Gee, I wish I knew this before I (nearly, not quite) cracked my Toyota engine because of lack of water. (I guess I shoulda bought a Chev). Anyways, atypical demos about where the water goes and what it does is shown here, nothing too surprising, but still interesting, just the way Jam Handy ordered.
